It's difficult to classify "Stay Gold" as an album in the traditional sense. The debut No-Source release from Will Bangs is more so an initial, beautiful spark of a grand experiment than it is the final words to a long mulled over topic. This collection of work (tracks 1 - 9) represents impressive sketches and musical beginnings. As a listener, these short, loop based, instrumental pieces of guitar driven folktronica stand very well on their own. They are quiet, reflective interludes to calm you down and make you shine. Stay Gold is an experiment in collaboration. These songs are meant to find their way to other artists across the internet where all sorts of inspired creation will bring them back home as complete thoughts. The final track on the album "Will + Chris" is the template for things to come. A stand out track, "Will + Chris" perfectly combines an emotive story of acoustic guitar and the mellow skittering of drum machines. No-Source invites you to re-work, remix, and add audio or visuals to the first nine tracks from Stay Gold. Visit the Remix Contest page for more information and stay gold.
